The Port & Seton House

Offering help and hope, housing programs operated by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Madison provide a home for up to 60 people at a time. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton House is our program for women and children transitioning from homelessness. Seton House operates through four sites in the Williamson-Marquette neighborhood. Port St. Vincent de Paul is nearby. The Port has long helped restore hope for men needing transitional, supportive or emergency housing. The Port also supplies meals, clothing and 24-hour staffing. Both programs help participants work toward goals for their appropriate next steps in life. Support from caring people like you makes these programs possible.

“I've learned a lot since I've been there. Like now I know how to budget my money. ... I'd rather be broke and know that all my bills are paid. I look at it like -- I know what things I need and what things I want, and the 'want' I put to the side.”
- Dee Dee, Former Seton House Resident
